INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN COMBINED IN TAPÌ CLOSURES.
In 2012, a crucial year in terms of the world economic crisis, the company grew by 30%, achieving an annual turnover of 22 million Euros.
It was operating from 3 factories, with 87 employees working in 19 different countries and trade in over 60 nations.
These remarkable figures relate to Tapì , the company established in 1998 by Alberto Baban and Nicola Mason, and the enterprise responsible for opening up the spirits market to synthetic closures. Nowadays, these cutting-edge closures produced by Tapì Spa are regarded as true masterpieces of industrial engineering and design, with 500 million of them sold in 2012 alone.
In addition to providing a hermetic seal, the Tapì closures have other important attributes: they never crumble, they do not produce dust, and they are impervious to mould or bacteria.
They offer a durable barrier to oxygen, so preserving the organoleptic features of the product and ensuring its proper maturation and conservation.
The closures are also fully tamper-proof. This success has been achieved following years of research, with the selection of raw materials in the form of high-tech polymers.
Huge and constant investments have been made in research and new technologies, combined with top Italian design and quality.
However, from 2003 onwards, the company has also focused its efforts on developing a safe and sustainable production regime for all the synthetic closures it manufactures.
This has involved adopting sources of renewable energy and continuing to invest in research and development.
The aim is to reduce the environmental impact of the product, and so Tapì closures have been designed to be completely recyclable.
Normally, synthetic closures are made from polyethylene, a derivative of ethylene, a petroleum-based product.
Ethylene, in its turn, derives from the thermal cracking of natural gas, naphtha or diesel. The type of polyethylene used by the Tapì Group, on the other hand, is derived from the dehydration of ethanol, produced by the processing of raw materials such as sugar cane, cereals and any other natural products which can be distilled to form alcohol.
This focus on technology and expertise has also led to the creation of Label19, a highly innovative product in the field of labelling.
The various stages of development for these new labels involved the use of cutting-edge elastomers employed in high-performance sports gear.
The new labels represent a real technological leap forward, using highly innovative materials.
With their embossed effect and precision of detail, combined with a wide range of finishes, they are also adaptable to any type of surface (glass, aluminium, wood, etc.), ensuring excellent adhesion even in extreme conditions. Importantly, the materials involved are also non-toxic and anti-allergic.
